Proper handling of the raw meats for dogs can help you to avoid food borne illnesses found in your dog pet animal.

- Never leave the raw meat for longer time more than two hours for example when you are not going to prepare your dog’s food immediately then make sure that you keep it in the refrigerator. Leaving the meat at the room temperature will allow for culturing the parasites and bacteria in the meat.
- Always make sure that you keep your hands clean when preparing the raw meat for dogs in which washing your hands with warm soapy water is found to be best one to go.
- Also make sure that the cooking utensils are kept clean. Make sure that you clean the utensils with warm water and soap, so there will not be any bacteria content in the utensils. Scrape your cutting board with a knife before washing it to remove any of the meat residue in which you may also want to soak the board in the water with bleach every week.
- Keep your cooking place clean when preparing the meat food for your dog. Don’t lay the dog’s meat anywhere in the unclean place since the area will be containing bacteria which will be transferable to the meat.
